Nexis UK - news and business information database

Nexis provides full text access to UK national and regional newspapers as well as international newspapers, newswires and foreign language news sources. Coverage is from the 1980s onwards and is updated daily. Nexis also provides access to business information such as company profiles and industry reports from a variety of sources.

Nexis has a range of search screens for the different types of information sources that it indexes e.g. News, Company Profiles, Industry News etc. Navigate between these search screens by clicking on the Search tab and corresponding subtabs at the top of the screen. Alternatively, click on the Sources tab to browse or search for specific information sources.

The University Library has developed a Nexis worksheet to guide you through conducting a news search. The worksheet can be accessed from this webpage by clicking the link on the right, under Quick links. A range of tutorials are also available from the Help link on the Nexis UK website (located in the top right corner of the screen). There are also help links on each page with information about that particular page.

Nexis can be accessed via StarPlus (search under the University Collections tab) or from the following link: . You will be prompted to sign into MUSE if you have not already done so.
